Providing training, advice, applied research and consultancies in support of the aquaculture industry.
I have an international reputation and strong network of industry and research links within the fields of broodstock management and egg/larval quality in farmed marine fish; formulating and testing fish and live-prey diets, and biochemical quality indices in salmon, cod, turbot, halibut and sea bass.
I graduated in Zoology with Marine Zoology from Bangor University in North Wales in 1978, followed by an industry-sponsored PhD (“Egg-quality in Captive Turbot, Scophthalmus maximus L.) awarded by Liverpool University in 1981.
I have eight years ‘hands on’ employment experience in commercial marine hatcheries in Shetland, Norway, France and the Isle of Man, plus a further 19 years of industry-relevant and site-based research within the field of marine aquaculture (Port Erin Marine Laboratory, Isle of Man; NERC Unit of Aquatic Biochemistry and the Institute of Aquaculture in Stirling; NAFC Marine Centre, Shetland).
I also have many years’ experience as an instructor, teacher, lecturer and supervisor of Aquaculture and Fisheries vocational, undergraduate, postgraduate and research students at the Universities of Swansea, Stirling; La Laguna (Tenerife), and the NAFC Marine Centre.
